I made a pencil-case with the same fabrics I used in the clutch. I saw directions for making a flat pencil-case online some time ago, and once I figured out the basics of attaching the zipper to the two front edges of the top fabric and attaching the lining to the zipper, too, the rest is just a matter of making the case any size you like. Mine are determined by the size of the zipper I happen to have on hand. I watch for zippers on sale at Wal-Mart and Hobby Lobby. Adding a small piece of fabric at each end of the zipper tape makes the case look more professional. And makes it easier to insert. I have managed to lose my zipper foot somewhere, but I was able to use a different foot on my Bernina 1008. Doesn’t work the same, but it got the job done.
